Fentanyl in ultra high dosage with Oxygen and air was used as a sole anaesthetic agent in a group of patients under going a variety of open heart surgery. The other group consisted of the conventional use of Morphine-Nitrous oxide anaesthesia. We found a significant difference in the haemodynamics in the two groups. Cardio-vascular haemodynamics remained constantly stable in the fentanyl group, while Morphine-N2O anaesthesia caused a marked depression of the cardiovascular system.
